Today's Cup of Tea: Peppermint Leaves (No. 45) from Smith Teamaker
Peppermint tea. If I choose to drink peppermint, it must be from Smith Teamaker. As it says on the packaging, "it's no secret that the world's most flavorful peppermint comes from the Pacific Northwest"--and I have to say that I agree. A calming cup of tea is exactly what I need after a long, draining shift at a job I never dreamed I would hold at this time in my life.
Calm is something that is hard to grasp in our culture. Working at a drive-through coffee shop, the stress and tension from hurried customers is palpable and contagious. How often do we take time to be still? To seek out a calm space? God creates this space for us, but He doesn't force us to stop and enjoy it. We have to choose to be still.
Be still, and soak in the calm moments created for you each and every day.
